    You just eliminated 60% of the houses in my hood where you would work.

    1. I block my customers mailboxes all the time, its part of it. I have a couple places that I block my customers and the neighbors mailbox, nothing else I can do
    2. I agree with this but there's always a nitpicker.
    3. I think if you are on the road you could always be construed as being in front of a neighbors house.
    4. Another unavoidable scenario sometimes
    5. Agree.
    6. Agree.
    7. Again an unavoidable situation sometimes, don't drive a broke down piece of junk that leaks fluids, take some pride in your appearance and equipment.
    8. Agree, but there's always a moron not paying attention.
    9. Easier said than done on large properties but we all try.

    I would never park in the middle of a culdesac, I would get hit and complaints all day long, but I have a 42' rig.

    If you or anyone else followed those "parking rules" nobody would get anything done. You'd spend all day looking for a adequate place to park.

    Also if I might ask, what is a "trailered vehicle"? Are you talking about the mowers and stuff being trailered to the job or a vehicle as in car/truck being trailered to the job? I bet I can back up a trailer better then you! I worked at a U-Haul center for 13 years. I backed up two 6x12 enclosed trailers with a 26ft International box truck over 50ft. I've also backed up a open single axle trailer at the rate of about 12-15mph with a pick up truck for a short distance. We use to place small wagers on who could do it the fastest,longest and closest without touching ALL the time. We (as in the team of employee's at the center, not a fake "crew") at the time had the top rated center in the country! :) I could drive backwards in a circle with my truck and trailer around yours while you're parked in the middle of that cul-di-sac you speak of. ;)
